Nene Leakes Finds Her Niche

We’ve all heard Nene trying to explain why she is being phased out of RHOA. He latest explanation was something like she didn’t want to be associated with all the weave pulling and trash talking forever.

And yet, this is the gig she just took. You really have to see the ending. Nene seems to fit right in. I think she’s found her next job.

Phaedra Parks Goes to Church

Oh for the love of all that is holy. This here is one hot mess. Phaedra’s book is about virgins being prepared? This woman is insane. If the pastor’s level of literacy is any indication, can’t none of those people read.

If you are interested in the parable of the ten virgins, you can click through for the entire scripture. Continue reading

Exclusive: Kenya Moore Makes Good on Her Donation to Detroit Public Schools Foundation

RHOA Kenya Check

This story is a TamaraTattles.com EXCLUSIVE sourced by our independent sources. Please follow proper protocol when excerpting and clearly linking to this story. You may have noticed Ebola is now in the country. You can blame those who misuse my work for that. My powers are vast.

After posting this story about Kenya Moore’s cancellation of a student assembly where she was expected to make a $20,000 donation,  a source close to Kenya reached out to me to attempt to explain the situation. After a bit of back and forth, I believe I have finally gotten the real story.

First of all, Kenya’s donation to the foundation came from her personal funds and was NOT connected to Celebrity Apprentice. Changes in the filming schedules that resulted in Kenya being unable to attend were initiated by Real Housewives of Atlanta production.  Also, production was not going to Detroit to film the check presentation. Her high school, Cass Tech ,proposed the ceremony in her honor to say thank you for the generous donation. Continue reading

Phaedra Parks on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

It’s time for Phaedra’s appearance on The Ellen Show to talk about her divorce and other things. First can we talk about this thing around her neck? Is that black fringey mess part of the dress? or part of the necklace? It certainly is the focal point of my attention. It appears that it is part of the necklace. She is wearing a red satin  dress that looks like something a 12-year-old would wear to a Christmas party There is even a giant bow on the back. She brings Ellen a picnic basket full of “southern items” and a #FixItJesus t-shirt and of course her book. With the picnic basket she looks like Little Red Riding Hood. I can’t believe she was styled by Shun Melson.  That dress makes her look as big as a house.

Phaedra says she really wanted to come on Ellen’s show because she has seen Ellen do some tough interviews and handle them compassionately and gracefully. She thinks she could have a little southern belle in her if she wore some pearls and a little skirt. Ellen jokes that is what she has on under her clothes. Continue reading

Kenya Moore Reschedules Her Donation to Detroit School System TWICE.

Porsha Williams Mugshot

Tonight I am feeling like snatching Kenya’s scepter

Excuse me, but I am a bit pissed off tonight. When I logged on for the first time today I had an email from GoFundMe letting me know there was a new announcement on Reality Tea’s fundraising drive for Detroit Public Schools. As a former teacher, it was a cause that was near and dear to my heart and I had been on the receiving end of many generous gifts to my classroom. I’m a strong believer in paying it forward and I made a contribution that is why I get the updates.  I looked on Twitter for the link to the Reality Tea donation site to include when I wrote  this post where I praised Kenya for her donation and defended her in comments.  I read in the update that Kenya’s donation event had been postponed again. I went to Reality Tea and read their article. As a Kenya fan, I wanted to hear her side of the story.  I did not rush to judge. I contacted Kenya.

I had the very best of intentions and believed that there must be a logical explanation why the donation ceremony was cancelled twice in two weeks. It takes a lot for a school to put together a school wide event with TV cameras. I got back two pissy emails. One informed me that “I  am  on a goddamn TV show and they reschedule things all the time.” The  next one said something about a conflict with her father’s schedule.  I responded that I am on her side and my blog is very favorable to her. I did tell her in first email that this seems to undo all the goodwill that she was putting out by donating. I felt badly for her. I am a supporter. I was trying to figure out where the problem lied. I am actually aware she is on a goddamn TV show. I don’t know what her father’s schedule has to do with anything. I sent a second email explaining I was only trying to help and that my site is very #TeamTwirl for the most part. I was asking for a defense. I heard nothing until her rant on Twitter. I’m not feeling super twirly tonight. Continue reading

Parks v. Stanton Update

Phaedra face2

 

UPDATE: I read the court’s order for Phaedra to comply with the depo.  The topics are narrowed to two. One, her agreement with Augustus Publishing resulting in her dropping her suit against them. And two, any “non-privileged”  questions regarding Apollo and his “alleged” criminal activities.  Which is pretty much the entire case more or less. So the depo might be interesting. Unfortunately, the agreement with Augustus has a confidentiality agreement involved. This means that the court will seal the depo when it is entered into evidence. So we probably won’t ever get to read it.

In other news, Phaedra is on her way to LA.  Who wants to go to the taping of Ellen and report back? :) No depo today, tomorrow,  Wednesday or probably Thursday so I suppose she will squeeze it in on Friday or Monday of next week?  That Phaedra always pushing things to the last minute.

I’m getting really bored with this drama. One would think that Phaedra would have better things to do being a single mother with two young sons, filming a TV show,  selling her workout videos, hawking her etiquette book to the less genteel, running a busy entertainment law practice representing celebrities, embalming all those bodies of humans and pets alike, taking her prayer cloth on a countrywide tour of religious congregations, making talk show appearances, building moats and gates around her white house, and now filing for divorce from her felonious husband. One would think so. But one would be wrong.  Because more than two years and countless attorneys later, Parks v. Stanton is still a thing. One has to wonder how long cases can drag on especially with and uncooperative plaintiff.

I got tired of transcribing the ridiculous excuse for a deposition this summer. I got tired of waiting for the plaintiff’s response to the defense’s motion to compel, which turned up last month. It was equally as ridiculous as the “deposition.”  Plaintiff’s attorney, who must be dying to jump ship like  the others before him have,  responded by saying that Phaedra did answer all relevant questions and that Defendant’s attorney was trying to make the case about Apollo.  Isn’t Apollo a big part of the case? The alleged libel of Phaedra is that Angela wrote a book that said that Phaedra was involved in Apollo’s criminal mess, right? If this was happening on a TV show we’d all be screaming about the absurdity of the storyline. But it’s not a TV show. This is actually going on in a court of law. Over two years. Continue reading

Nene Leakes Goes on National TV Without a Shirt

There are so many things wrong with this clip I don’t know where to begin. Did she stop paying her PR team? I love how she pretends like Fashion Police has contacted her this time. On the last show she admitted they had not.  See how many wrong things you can find about this clip. Don’t leave the audience she is half nude in front of out of the equation. Continue reading

Kenya Moore Puts Her Money Where Her Mouth Is. Nene Leakes? Not So Much.

Kenya Moore RHOAKenya Moore is a woman of her word. She will be in Detroit next week to present a check to the Detroit Public School System for $20,000. If you recall, Nene challenged Kenya to make the donation to a charity of her choice for $20K  and Nene would match it.  Time to go look in that empty Hermes bag, Nene!

Article excerpts from Ann Zaniewski, Detroit Free Press Education Writer (Click for full story)

Kenya Moore, a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” will donate $20,000 during an appearance Oct. 17 at Cass Technical High School, her alma mater. It will be filmed for an upcoming episode of the show.

Moore said her Detroit roots, the inequities she sees in the education system and the city’s financial problems inspired her to give back. “I think right now it’s a dire situation for Detroit. I wish I could give more of my money to DPS. Clearly, $20,000 is not going to solve the problem, (but) hopefully it will help.”

Moore also plans to start a scholarship program for girls who attend Cass Tech. Moore and fellow cast member NeNe Leakes each pledged to donate $20,000 during a sixth-season reunion episode of the Bravo TV show. It was taped in March and aired in May. Continue reading

Phaedra Finally Admits She is Divorcing Apollo

But this seemed like true love!

But this seemed like true love!

In the lead up to Phaedra Parks appearance on The Ellen Show next week, her  press representative, Steve Honig has reportedly told E! News exclusively, “[She] has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage.”  And that boys and girls is the shortest exclusive in tabloid history. It’s not even a complete sentence.  And it’s also bizarre. Does anyone believe this is an amicable divorce?

I got several emails about this turn of events ( Thanks! They are much appreciated) and so I went to look for some sort of statement and it’s a sentence fragment given to one site? Does this seem weird to anyone else?

Is Phaedra going on The Ellen Show to announce her divorce? Is that the southern belle way according to Phaedra Parks? This is all kind of ridiculous. Continue reading

Phaedra Parks to Appear on Ellen!?

Phaedra Parks Showing Her Ass.

Phaedra Parks Showing Her Ass.

UPDATE: IT’S OFFICIAL: Phaedra is listed on Ellen’s website as a guest with Heidi Klum! Waiting for hell to freeze over next…

Phaedra’s publicist has confirmed that Phaedra will film an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on October 14th that will air on October 15th. According to a statement, “Phaedra  will be very candid about what happened with Apollo, her life now and plans for the future.” Her publicist has indicated that WWHL had not approached her for an interview.

Phaedra will likely be about as candid and Teresa was on WWHL.  For someone who can’t give a deposition in her own case, where she is the plaintiff, I can’t imagine her doing anything but trying to hawk her book. I cannot for the life of me figure out why Ellen would book her. She rarely has any Reality TV personalities on the show. Frankly, none of this makes sense to me.  We shall see what happens.  If it happens, it should be interesting. Continue reading

Is Phaedra Parks Hooked on Pills?

RHOA Phaedra Face

I do not do too many blind items on this site, but I do enjoy reading them at Crazy Days and Nights. The guy that runs the site is an entertainment lawyer who seems to have an endless supply of sources with credible information. By the time he reveals his blinds, you find yourself saying, “Oh, that makes perfect sense now.” Today he revealed this blind he first published on February 26th.

Blind Items Revealed

February 26, 2014This Southeast based Housewife is popping pills almost constantly and rarely shows up for work and when she does show up just sleeps on the floor for an hour or two before leaving.

Nene Leakes Can Spin You Fools Anyway She Wants, Really?

RHOA Nene teeth

 

I sometimes forget that some of you are new, you don’t know me, you don’t trust my sources yet. But really? Do a bit of reading, PULEASE. Nene Leakes has been losing her mind lately. She’s desperate because she has been told this is her last season on RHOA.  That is her only huge paycheck and it’s not anything close to the million dollars she wants y’all to think it is. She’s standing in for a drag queen who is on summer vacation for a week in Vegas. And she is closing out a Broadway show of Cinderella so that the real actress can prepare for her next gig.

She is taking anything she can get. I admit the Broadway gig was pretty impressive from a career standpoint. But Nene’s MONEY comes from Bravo and they are done with her. And she knows it. So all of these rumors about production companies (WTF does Nene Leakes know about running a business let alone production) or replacing Joan Rivers? Stop trying to make the bitch roll over in her grave. Continue reading
